    The diagnosis of menopause is made after periods have stopped for at least 1 year after the age of 40 due to reducing ovarian activity.The age span can vary between 45 to 55 and the median age is 52 years.Menopause occurring before the age of 40 is premature and one needs to consult a Gynaecologist.

    The time span for several months to several years leading to menopause is called perimenopause.The periods during this time may become irregular and the patient may experience hot flushes, night sweats, anxiety, mood swings etc; 30-60% of women may experience emotional symptoms at this time. The major symptoms include:

    Hot Flushes and Night seats

    Vaginal dryness

    Tiredness and sleep disturbances

    Mood swings and lack of concentration

    Loss of interest in having sex

    Every woman experiences menopause differently. A few will have a combination of different mild symptoms while others will have more severe symptoms.Some women choose to go through menopause without any treatment whereas others prefer to have hormonal or non-hormonal medications to help control their symptoms.

    However it is important to consult a Gynaecologist as irregular periods and other symptoms may be due to other pathologies and may need investigating.

    A healthy lifestyle is very important during this time to maintain good bone health and general health.Regular aerobic exercises like swimming, jogging, brisk walking and in general maintaining an active lifestyle and maintaining an optimal body mass index is very important and helps in preventing osteoporosis, heart disease etc;

    Low-intensity exercises such as yoga may help to reduce hot flushes and boost general well-being.

    Reducing intake of tea/coffee/ caffeinated drinks will help reduce hot flushes and night sweats.

    Vaginal lubricants and moisturisers help in reducing vaginal dryness during intercourse.

    Also equally important is having a diet rich in Calcium, proteins and low in fat and refined carbohydrates like sweets and junk foods.

    Soya-based foods like soya beans, chickpeas, peas are rich is phytoestrogens nad may help in reducing perimenopausal/ menopausal symptoms.

    Getting an annual health check up done helps in identifying risks earlier and taking appropriate actions earlier on.

    Women should have regular PAP smears, BP check, Mammograms, Lipid profile done and other tests if clinically indicated.

    Finally, it is best to consult a Gynaecologist if a woman is having any perimenopausal or menopausal symptoms so that appropriate treatment can be instituted.

    Leucorrhea or excessive discharge per vagina can be a troublesome problem for many women. At certain times in the menstrual cycle the vaginal discharge is normally increased as in mid-cycle and just before the periods. This is normal. However if the discharge is smelly or excessive warranting use of sanitary towels or panty liners or associated with vulval/ vaginal itching it needs to be investigated.

    Abnormal vaginal discharge associated with the above symptoms may be due to local infection. It may also be related to poor health, mal-nutrition, constipation, worm infestation, anaemia, local trauma and allergy to local soaps and deodrants.

    If the discharge is persistent it is very important to consult a gynaecologist who may prescribe antibiotics, creams, pessaries and sometimes get swabs done.

    It is important to keep the area clean using plain water and dry, one should avoid any form of soap/ dettol/ detergent and powders and perfumes in that area as it is very sensitive. Also general health should be improved and anaemia and mal-nutrion should be corrected. Deworming may be required. A local wash like v-wash can be applied once in a while locally that helps maintaining local pH. Drinking adequate water daily is also very important.

    This post is primarily intended to pregnant women and those planning a pregnancy and their husbands and stems from the many queries that I keep having from pregnant and to be mums who want to do the best for their babies!

    Keeping healthy when you are having a baby depends on both the amount and the type of food you eat before you become pregnant and during your pregnancy.

    To eat healthily, you should aim to do the following.
    • Base your meals on starchy foods such as potatoes, bread, rice and wholegrain foods like roti .
    • Eat a low-fat diet and don’t increase the number of calories you eat. Eat as little fried food as possible and avoid drinks that are high in added sugars, and other foods such as sweets, cakes and biscuits that have a high fat or sugar content.
    • Instead, eat fibre-rich foods such as oats, beans, lentils(dal), green vegetables, grains and seeds,as well as wholegrain bread, roti, chappati, rice and wholemeal pasta.
    • Eat some protein every day; choose chicken, fish, egg. Lentils, beans and tofu are also a good source
    of protein.
    • Eat dairy foods for calcium but choose low-fat varieties such as skimmed milk or low-fat yogurt.
    • Watch the portion size of your meals and snacks and note how often you eat. Do not ‘eat for two’.
    • Always eat breakfast.
    • Limit your caffeine intake to 200 milligrams (mg) per day, for example two mugs of instant coffee.
    Be aware that other drinks such as tea and energy drinks also contain caffeine.
    Most women do not need any extra calories during the first six months of pregnancy. It is only in the last12 weeks that they need to eat a little more, and then only an extra 200 calories a day, which is roughly the same as two slices of bread or roti.

    What is a ‘healthy’ weight?
    You can find out your healthy weight from your BMI (body mass index). This is a measure of your weight in relation to your height. A healthy BMI is above 18.5 but below 25. Being overweight carries risks for you and your baby like diabetes , high Blood Pressure and poor wound healing at caesarean section. It also increases the risk of blood clots developing in the legs during pregnancy and after delivery.
    Being underweight increases the risk of your baby not growing as well as he or she should.
    However,trying to lose weight by dieting during pregnancy is not recommended as it may harm the health of your unborn baby.


    Folic acid is one of the B vitamins and helps to reduce the risk of your baby having spina bifida. Taking extra folic acid may also reduce the risk of heart or limb defects and some childhood brain tumours. The recommended daily dose is 400 micrograms (μg). Ideally, you should start taking extra folic acid before you conceive and continue to take it until you reach your 13th week of pregnancy. If you did not take folic acid before you became pregnant, start taking it as soon as you realise you are expecting a baby. You will need higher doses of folic acid in some conditions like diabetes, epilepsy and if you have had a previous baby with neurological problems.

    Vitamin D and Calcium supplements as advised by your doctor - during pregnancy and breast feeding

    Iron : if you are anaemic as advised by your doctor.

    Thus in summary you should have a well balanced diet rich in proteins ,carbohydrates , vitamins and low in fats. Have a healthy snack like fruits, brown bread, cereals , health drink like horlicks or complan in between three major meals. Never overstuff yourself and never skip your breakfast .

    Approximately 5% of women experience severe premenstrual symptoms which include depression, anxiety,irritability and loss of confidence, and physical symptoms including bloating and mastalgia.
    PMS is ‘a condition which manifests with distressing physical, behavioural and
    psychological symptoms, in the absence of organic or underlying psychiatric disease, which regularly recurs during the second half of each menstrual (ovarian) cycle and which disappears or significantly regresses by the end of menstruation’.
    The degree and type of symptoms can vary significantly from woman to woman. The precise aetiology of PMS remains unknown but cyclical ovarian activity and hormonal fluctuation throughout the month has been implicated.
    Absence of PMS before puberty, in pregnancy and after the menopause supports this theory .
    It can be graded as mild, moderate or severe depending on the degree of symptoms.
    Since patients can find these symptoms very debilitating and often get depressed patiently listening to them and good support from their doctors and family is always helpful. I advise women to do regular exercise throughout the month like walking, jogging, cycling and swimming. Maintaining a optimal body weight and eating a well balanced diet also helps amongst other things getting a sense of confidence back.
    Also reducing tea, coffee, salt intake in the second half of cycle is helpful. So is yoga.
    There are medicines available in extreme cases to help with symptom control that can be prescribed by a doctor. These are usually hormonal pills to maintain a balance throughout the cycle or a group of drugs called SSRI's. Also in some cases vitamin supplements like evening primrose oil and vitamin E are prescribed. In extreme cases injections and surgery may have to be considered.

    This is become a very common diagnosis in young girls and women who present with a history of irregular/ prolonged/delayed periods. Not usually associated with pain.
    Pcos is a genetically inherited condition and usually is linked to a family history of diabetes. It is associated with high levels of male hormones- androgens/ testosterone and hence features of hirsutism which is developing male type hair pattern in female i. E unwanted hair on chest/ face etc// tendency to develop acne and oily skin. It is also usually associated with obesity/ overweight. Usg pelvis shows presence of numerous small cysts in ovary. Many women might find it difficult to conceive as because of hormonal imbalance an egg is not released every month. There is also a preopensity to develop type 2 diabetes later in life.
    Almost all the symptoms are treatable with medicines. However as it is genetically linked and has long term health implications the single most important thing is to try and reduce weight and mantain normal bmi. This can be achieved by a combination of exercise and diet.
